The Middy Fast-Affix Pellet Band Tool comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.
Description: tool for mounting pellets in bait bands quickly.
Specifications: easy to use; automatic mechanism; ergonomic design; suits right- and left-handed anglers.
My verdict: slip a pellet band over the four prongs, push the plunger to stretch the band open, pop a pellet into the centre of the band and then remove the band from the tool.
You’ve now got a banded pellet ready for a pole float or Method feeder rig. Simples!
You can band maggots and casters, too. In fact you can catch several fish on one caster, as a pellet band won’t weaken its shell, unlike a hook.
This is one of several handy Band ‘Em tools from Middy.
